Pad Thai @ Yum Thai – Recommended

One of my favourite things to eat in all the world is the king of noodle dishes, the takeaway pad thai.

But Canberra has, to date, been a little disappointing on this front. We’ve got a lot of Chinese and Vietnamese places that put it on the menu but can’t quite get their heads around it.

But in my opinion Yum Thai on Woolley St in Dickson have got it cracked. I can’t speak for their other food, although the specials board intrigues me, but for take-away pad thai they’re now my destination of choice.

$13.50 gets you four big prawns, plenty of chicken, the right noodles at the right consistency, and not too much oil. Most importantly there’s enough chilli to add bite, without bringing distracting fire. And the lemon wedge, when squeezed, gets all the way through.

Top notch.

Go across the road to the Mekong River restaurant. That’s where the chef from the Yum Thai ended up and the menu is very similar to the old Yum Thai menu.

Thank you! Will try them out tonight.

(Sorry JB, too lazy.)
